Trap Doesn't Have to Loud to Be Successful

While much of the top 40 EDM scene is dominated by House music (mostly progressive or deep), Trap is the sub-genre of EDM that gets me most excited. In my eyes Trap has the highest ceiling because much of sound is derived from what I like best about EDM (synth driven chord progressions) and Hip Hop (low bass). Not only are Trap beats a love child of two great parents, they're also less prone to being ruined by terrible rappers who can distract from the quality of the instrumentation.

All that being said, I generally like my Trap music loud and heavy to the point of speaker fatigue. Below is a new track by TroyBoi that is an exception to the aforementioned generalization. Zone is exactly what you'd hope a song with that title would be. It's a song that is so cooled out that it induces relaxation by listening. The flutes layered on top of a quirky, but soothing beat mix really well together. Even better, it won't cost you more than a Soundcloud like to cop the track. Good things in life don't usually come free, but tonight it did...#MyStyle
